Zero comments huh? I read this, and it's interesting:

it has two candidates to go No. 1 overall—a selection the Twins will make—who fit profiles that never have fit with that selection in more than 50 years of draft history.

One of course is Hunter Greene, the righthander and infielder out of Notre Dame High in Sherman Oaks, Calif., who has earned some Dwight Gooden comparisons from scouts, hit 102 mph this spring and also has the power to be a legit hitting prospect. If the Twins draft Greene as a pitcher at No. 1, he’d be the first high school righthander ever to lead off a draft.

The other is more of a surprise, as Louisville’s Brendan McKay has gotten off to a ridiculous start and started to earn serious consideration as the top selection, even as a hitter. Earning comparisons to John Olerud, McKay is a lefthanded hitter and pitcher who entered the spring already acknowledged as the best pure hitter in the college class... No college first baseman has been drafted first overall.

since the cubs, red sox and Yankees do not draft in the top 10, does it even exist?

I must admit I dread the idea of picking a P with the number one overall pick. I know I shouldn't, but still.

I just feel bad for any pitcher going to the Twins.

Twins and 102mph don't seem to get along. They'll probably reach for a 24-year old junkballer. More their style.
